A total of 17 PROJECT skins are already in the game but now Riot will bring in six brand new additions. The new cosmetics will include Varus, Mordekaiser, Senna, Renekton, Sejuani, and Sylas.

With six new additions to the skin line, PROJECT will now be one of the biggest in the game and without a doubt continue to be a fan favorite. Two of the new skins have already been hinted at recently by Riot, starting with Varus who had his PROJECT skin showcased in a tweet by Riot during his birthday, which has been deleted since.
Shortly after, the PROJECT Mordekaiser skin was confirmed in a teaser that Riot released. The teaser gave a brief look at Mordekaiser in his PROJECT form, grabbing his weapon with intense music building up in the background. The teaser was the final hint at the extension to the PROJECT skin line that continues to live strong with a true cyberpunk theme.
